Pic of the Week

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and as we push towards the new year (and the U.S. National Championships!) I thought the pic of the week should chronicle some of the great wins in U.S. History.

We have to go back to 2003 for this one. Lang and Tchernyshev were entrenched in battle with the surging, young, American Team of Belbin and Agosto. For the first time the former Junior World Champions were pressing the veteran team and challenging them for the title.

Tanith and Ben threw down a great Free Dance. Lang and Tchernyshev would need to be perfect to regain there title. Their program to "Still Loving You" by the Scorpions was near perfection and to this day remains one of my favorite Ice Dance programs of all time.

They narrowly defeated Tanith and Ben and won their fifth consecutive (and final) National title.
